4000 Marines Headed To Middle East As Part Of Peleliu Amphibious Group Dispatch

Up until now, the LHD 7 Iwo Jima Big-Deck Amphibious Warfare ship was all alone in the Arabian Sea, patiently awaiting orders to liberate this or that middle east country of their oil reserves. This is no longer the case: launching today in general direction - Middle East - for a brand new 7 month engagement, is the LHA 1 Peleliu Amphibious Ready Group, consisting of the amphibious assault ship, the USS Peleliu which consists of 4000 marines. LHA 1 also comprises of the amphibious transport dock USS Green Bay and the dock landing ship USS Rushmore. Also deploying Monday is the Marine Corps' 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit and elements of Fleet Surgical Team 1, Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 23, Assault Craft Units 1 and 5, and Beach Master Unit 1. And as we reported previously, the middle east veteran - the CVN 74 Stennis aircraft carrier - was providently already on its way. In other words, in about 2 weeks, the Middle east will be the focal point of 3 aircraft carriers, 2 amphibious assault forces, and who knows how many "developed" world armadas, all hell bent on securing that one extra bit of Middle East oil, under the guise of spreading democracy and liberating the local people who "hate America's for its freedom."

Just a wast of money. Obama will not send them in against his Muslim Brotherhood family. It is nothing but a sign of strength, not a sign of force.

Absolutely disturbing.

Who authorized this? I'm no general but to me this seems like an act of war.

If there were 3 Russian or Chinese aircraft carriers floating around your country how would you feel?

No wonder a buddy of mine was deployed this past weekend....

This is sick.

Thank you for posting things other than Foxnews/CNN headlines Joe. I'm not surprised that this isn't on any major media outlet. They are the scum of The Earth.

I said it before and will repeat it: We can expect to be in a war just before election time. This is how politicians perpetuate their power.

And when they get killed Obama will appoligise to the country that had to shoot them and reemburse them for the bullets!

I wonder if he let them have any bullets?
I can only imagine the "rules of engagement".

Funny, you talk about "apologies" and disarmament, but seems this administration has been racking up the terrorists body count across the globe. Oh I remember, you guys are all for the McCain strategy; thump your chest hard and roar then throw our men and women into every conflict without a real plan.

We have also had almost twice as many men/women killed under Obama in the last 3 years as we did with 8 years with Bush.

4:34 is absolutely right. Another war from our nobel peace prize recipient-in-chief will be our October surprise.
